Today, Portal 2 for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 saw a HUGE jump in sales on Amazon thanks to them pricematching Walmarts offer. With no TAX to most and $0.99 release date delivery (free with AmazonPrime), Amazon is the way to go.
I think I'm going to have to go with the PS3 version...more bang for your buck!
Steam bringing all the platforms together? Awesome. Wished more devs would allow us to all play with each other....wait that doesn't sound right. ^_^
no dude, just PC and PS3 and cross-platform play is possible if I'm not mistaken. 360 not included!
Power of PS3 support
The free Steam copy with the PS3 version is just icing on the cake ;)
no pun intended but THAT's THE CAKE!
Yes, but what the article suggests will obviously not work. Once you've tied the physical copy to your Steam account, you can't sell it anymore. Well, you can, but it'll be useless to whoever buys it.
Obviously not familiar with the concept of buying games online are we....
but it will be interesting to see how they will implement it though. it will be counter-productive if people buy the PS3 version and got the PC version for free and trade-in their PS3 version right away. but to think back about it, buying the PC version only cost you $50, while the console version is $60. but you will still get back quite an amount if you resell your copy in the first week, right? wow...tricky tricky situation there...hhmm...
OMG I can't wait. I've still yet to hear if the PC will be able to coop with PS3 version. Anyone know yet?
Yes the game is cross platform. You will be able to coop with PS3, PC and Mac gamers.
Now that is sweet.
Thanks man. That is awsome. Another reason to pick up the PS3 version
Wow! Amazing! I will be able to play co op with my nephews through my PS3? I just built them a PC and gave them access to my steam account. This is really huge!
yeah im going with the PS3 version i mean if you have both consoles this is kind of a no brainier.
So getting it for the PS3.
I've pre-ordered Portal 2 on 360 and PS3 (course I get PC version). Cant wait :D Call me crazy. I dont care :P
Sorry, we should have added "Other" as a choice as well on the POLL. It doesn't sound crazy at all. If you're an Xbox 360 gamer that also games on a PC, you could also buy both 360 and PS3 versions and sell the PS3 version once you unlock the PC version. You just don't get the cross platform play is all but a chance to play the PC version for cheap while playing with your friends on the 360.
I have a PS3 too. No way would I sell the PS3 version. I want all 3 versions, thats all ;P And to have the PC version for free, you need to activate steamworks on the PS3 to PC, or else you dont get the PC version free.
I wasn't saying for YOU to sell the PS3 version. I was just saying how for the POLL there are many more choices then what we put as answers and that there should have been an "Other" choice. I was giving another example that would have fallen under that answer, hence the "also".
Why does anyone have to sell the ps3 version? Why couldn't they just accept and keep it as they would their steam copy? Whats wrong with free online play and trophies? Yet keep the 360 version because? What you don't get a key to the mac/pc versions? This is despite of everything else included in the ps3 version? I mean...your suggesstion doesn't sound right at all. And who knows maybe they'll be some sort of limit to this key and sharing inpose that would prohibit such action, again who knows, we yet to know all the details.
@car1122 FYI, I wrote the article and the POLL questions on CG. Did it sound like an Xbox troll wrote it? I don't think so! I noticed "Kran" didn't have an option to choose from the POLL. If you think about it, there could be a dozen questions in all but the POLL would get to lengthy. I mentioned I should have put an "other" option in the POLL and then suggested even another option for those that want the free PC version. I might have thought of it because YES I have an Xbox 360, but I also have a PS3 and a brand new PC that would love a free Portal 2 version for it. I was not trying to troll or say you should sell the PS3, just throwing out suggestions for those that want a free PC version. Have a nice day...
Just a note - they can't actually know how many copies have been sold for PC, because most people would get the game through Steam, and those figures aren't released. So, while obviously the PS3 is the lead platform for sales as far as the consoles go, nobody can really tell how many people are just buying the PC version on Steam. Personally i've just pre-ordered on Steam, as I have no real reason to play it on either of my consoles.
agreed if someone has the PC version then playing anyother version will be pointless. I personally bought the PC version for 40usd, along with a buddy. Thats 20usd cheaper then the console version.
So ready for more Portal!
I enjoyed Portal on the 360 it was fantastic. But i am going to have to get the PS3 version since my PC isnt good for games like this.
Click agree if you're getting the PS3 version! *raises hand*
Too many games...to buy...on...PS3.... 12
